While driving, the oil cooler pipe started to leak from a hole in the rubber section between the metal clamps. The leak is somewhat hard to see because I had just put in fresh oil. In order to save the money for the repairs, which I had to make because I am still making payments on the loan for this car, I had to purchase a very old and inexpensive car to get to work. The Toyota sat parked for 9 months before it could be fixed. And while the handling is secure, it's not very agile. Summary: Summary to be provided on a future date.
If the front passenger seat occupant sensing system is out of calibration, the front passenger airbags may not deploy or they may deploy inappropriately for the passenger's size and position. Body trim scratched through the paint on the tailgate so the metal on the rear tailgate rusted. The cooler runs engine coolant in passages surrounding the oil, cooling the oil as it does so. I checked the dipstick and you could not see anything on it. You should receive a letter from the manufacturer if your car has been recalled. Toyota continue to experience quality problems and should honor their products within or outside their warranty when it is clearly related to poor quality.
I narrowly avoided several accidents when the car stalled in traffic. Without passing the calibration test, the occupant sensing system may not operate as designed. The contact purchased an after market metal hose and replaced the defective hose. It was determined that the engine oil cooler line was leaking. The third-row seat is tight.
Told there is a 'Service Bulletin' for hinges that cause failure. Of course, there is still oil all the way down the street, trailing into the driveway, and puddled where the car was parked. This is an engine killing problem. I'm still not sure all leaks are found and fixed. This event could have been catastrophic, had it not coincidentally happened in my driveway, when I returned from a 10 mile trip with my daughter. They are not the same as recalls.
The third-row seat is tight. Top engine block was replaced and we got off scott free. This has me worried of similiar problems they had with one of there other 4cyl engines. Consequence: If damaged, the copper strand heating element may short circuit, increasing the risk of a fire. Summary: Tech tip: since my 2011, several different update or upgrade usb ssts have been issued for toyota audio and navigation systems. It must be manually pushed shut.
It has to be dealt with. I would have blown my motor for sure if I was on the highway. Correction: Set will notify owners, and dealers will disconnect the heaters with copper strand heating elements and refund the purchase price of the seat heater accessory, free of charge. Toyota had a recall in 2011 for this equipment, but no longer allows repair or replacement under recall. This started about when the car was about 2 years old but the dealership would not fix it.
In rare cases the lines fail entirely, resulting in catastrophic engine damage. Dealer said gear defect which had since been redesigned for newer models. Most of my driving is highway driving with light weekend traffic. The paint is fading on the plastic part of the roof rear panel. The previous highlander was traded with over 125000 km and the brakes were still good. Dealer replaced rear lift window seal and replaced back door switch.
Next Saturday I filled a qt oil to the level and drove to repair shop. The technician said almost all 5. This was a repeat issue. If I wanted an oil leak or coolant leak at 100K, I could have bought any old, cheap vehicle. I have a line all the way down my street of the oil spewing out of the engine. The contact stated that after parking the vehicle, he noticed a large amount of oil in the driveway.
